The Electrostars are one of the most iconic commuter rail platforms you can find in the UK - all electric, and quite standard trains. Many operators use them and they continue to serve the busiest regions of the network. As the Train Sim World franchise continues to grow with greater quantities of the same train, it's time to produce one mod which affects them all. The audio is as follows:

youtube

Plenty of inverter sounds

  • The new soundset has separate interior and exterior recordings mixed effectively
  • Sounds include the switch from the CPWM type to the CHMPWM technique before synchronisation
  • Sync includes all harmonic audio, not only preserved, but as-recorded

Detailed gearbox audio

New running recordings

  • Audio sampled from 377419 has been mixed anew to the Electrostars
  • There's a 20% chanced that knackered wheel tread sounds will play at high speed
  • More running recordings are used with the new mix than before

Additional flange squeals

  • Several clips have been implemented for these trains at different speeds
  • These have all been recorded from 377419
  • At very slow speeds, sporadic scraping noises play
  • For moderate speeds, squeals become intense - a realistic volume level
  • Once the train travels faster, squeaks are more airy - like a grating sound
  • Subtle wheel flange noise can still be heard at high speeds

Dozens more track joint clips

  • 93 recorded Class 377 and Class 387 track joint sounds have been added
  • More violent volleys of clicks and clacks will start playing as the train travels faster over joints
  • Additional sounds have been mixed for the interior of the train

Clearer miscellaneous sounds

  • Extra recordings have been included to replace, squeaks, rattles, converters... etc
  • Where possible, dedicated recordings are provided for their respective trains such as horns, fan whirs, doors... etc

Affects the following trains

  • Southeastern Class 375/9 (Southeastern Highspeed) - SE Blue
  • Southeastern Class 375/9 (Southeastern Highspeed) - SE White & Grey
  • Southern Class 377/4 (Brighton Main Line)
  • Gatwick Express Class 387/2 (Brighton Main Line)

Known Issues

would hope you got plans to do the pacer as well coming out soon as i hate the sound of it sounds like a 101

Avatar of ItsYa165
ItsYa165 9 Nov 2023

The issue is that they're basically all gone. But to be fair, the pacers have had a couple different engines and used to be all gearbox before hydrostatic

hey I have a question, could you at some time please make your fun soundmods compatible with TSW4? I really liked the different sound for the MAG 423, but now it's just the normal sound :(

I believe Linus Train Tips has started looking into the Train Sim World franchise now. Get in-touch with him about this proposal since he has real recordings of the train. https://www.youtube.com/@LinusTrainTips

mate the recommended mod you put in does not actually work for tsw4 unfortunately, the files have not yet been updated to tsw4 but i believe its one of DTG's main things to to fix. at least thats what they said in the november roadmap.

Your mods are awesome, but after each update differently named, so I don't know which file to delete. Isn't better name it samely to prevent duplicating them?

Avatar of ItsYa165
ItsYa165 12 Nov 2023

This is definitely a you problem - it's not so good like this:

  • Not everyone follows the mod so it needs to be made really clear whether the file is different to their one
  • The changelog is based on the version I give to the file, I can't date it because nobody remembers dates
  • If a new version does not work, I need to be able to quickly backtrack to the one I know works and upload it

For you installing the file, just set the mod folder to alphabetical order. This way the old and new are always next to each other so you can clearly see what to delete... and if you need to find a mod, it is easy to find alphanumerically.

ItsYa165 12 Nov 2023

And besides... nobody said you can't just replace the existing file yourself. If you want to overwrite an old file to save 1 click and 1 key - do it. The file name does not affect the content of the mod and this would solve your problem.

Alright, I'll pick a different recording later. But it would be an SE 377 rather than from the actual SN 377

The British Ace really doesn't like this horn. He's said it's wrong, as he works with Southern Rail's 377s. If you don't mind, I'm going to reinstate the one which I know was definitely right and recorded from SN's own 377 with better editing

I test it between London and Brighton. Very good sound mod !
Is it possible for you to extend it for the Class 377 of East Costway Line ? Thanks in advance !

Avatar of ItsYa165
ItsYa165 22 Nov 2023

No. To heck with the East Coastway Class 377. Ask Alexendre L if they'll redo the mod which replaces it.

These are all excellent! The 375 is finally drivable after the last update!
Any chance the AWS green signal ping can be turned down a bit? It's really loud on both the 375 and 377. That's my only bit of feedback.
Thanks for all the work you do!

Avatar of ItsYa165
ItsYa165 23 Nov 2023

These are not modded but potentially

Avatar of FrankStevenson
FrankStevenson 23 Nov 2023

Yeah that would be cool if it could.
Right now it's extremely loud and it bounces left and right in my headset. I think it definitely needs a tweak

Avatar of FrankStevenson
FrankStevenson 23 Nov 2023

Also it's worth noting that the AWS ping is too loud by default without this mod installed. I'm just thinking you might have the know-how to adjust it. ;)

Exactly, the AWS on the 375 is ripping my ears off, 387 has the perfect sounding AWS. If it would be possible to tone it down a bit it would be awesome, otherwise the soundpack is excellent, loving it!

Just enjoy this mod for the time being. I've got lots of recordings made for the Class 158 which you can listen to https://youtu.be/0OK7zrOpCaE

Just a question, when the train accelerates and decelerates, why is there so much screeching for the gearbox sounds when it doesnt sound like that in real life the distinctive whine happens at around 20-25 MPH (Correct if wrong) instead there is a smoother build up, if you have got a different recording where it has that build up and the gearbox sound change this mod will be perfect! Apart from that everything is fantastic!

But it does because it's directly taken from the recording posted on my channel and here

Recordings are sampled at the following speeds in MPH: 3, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 21, 23, 25, 26, 28, 33, 36, 41, 48, and 51

Avatar of ItsYa165
ItsYa165 14 Dec 2023

I'll put it this way - the recording doesn't lie. You're welcome to listen to all 4 hours of it which includes the 377 and 387 - more than substantiative.

The 387 actually has 1 extra sound than the 377 just for this exact moment.

And then if you listen here, you'll see how I've produced it to match as heard from the recording: https://youtu.be/vpe8swX5vcw

Hm interesting the clip you send for the video at the specific point sounds slightly different to ingame maybe its something on my end but there is alot of screeching (like flange but worse) when accelerating even on a straight bit of track

Does it planning to add in East Coastway? (ECW have older Class 377, and sounds are old too)

I've tried this out properly and 1. the traction motors don't sound quite right and 2. there are lots of wobbly and badly mixed sounds including the doors which I'm sure is TSW rather than the recordings, it's almost there but not quite.. One thing I will say though is that the running sounds are great and you've managed to get those spot on. I don't normally use TSW (since it makes my computer death freeze :/) but it would be great to have some of these sounds in TSC for the 377/387 ap enhancement packs. They've already got the traction motors, doors, etc spot on but the running sounds could be improved which you've got.. I don't know if you even use TSC or have any AP items but if there's a way you could use these sounds to do a small patch with just the running sounds I'd be veryyy happy :)

Difference of opinion

Avatar of c.roz
c.roz 7 Apr 2024

Difference in hearing and memory more like, I've travelled on these units since I was a kid and went to school on them every day so I'd say everything I've just said is a fair assessment. If you can do the running sounds in TSC and patch the AP 377 enhancement that would be great but please leave the rest!

Avatar of ItsYa165
ItsYa165 7 Apr 2024

No. I mean you can say whatever but sure, I'll be redoing the pulse modes at some point as well replacing the CHM sample with a new clip from the RCFM version of the Mitrac 4QC. But stuff like doors aren't even anything to mix, they're as recorded. And I have about 30GB of recordings for just these trains alone.

So when I say difference of opinion, I mean difference of opinion. I know that the VVVF clips are a mixed bag, especially 11P and 9P but like it's going to take some time to address this from a pulse mode stand point.

Avatar of c.roz
c.roz 7 Apr 2024

I'm not trying to be harsh or anything, just sharing my honest opinion on what I thought you'd done best as well as what could be improved after hearing the sounds out raw and in the sim. Getting it up to 90 was my favourite part which is why I say you've done the running sounds spot on.
